Other Ways to Help

This young boy asked that pet food be his birthday gifts.

As an Individual

Host a pet food drive at your school, church or business and donate the proceeds to one of Pets of the Homeless Pet Food Providers.  Contact us and we’ll help you make your event successful.

Like the young boy in the photo instead of giving gifts make a donation in the name of the person celebrating. We’ll mail them an acknowledgement.
